Hi All:

I have a problem with a Windows 2003 R2 Server setup as a member server and running terminal services in application mode in a SBS 2003 network.  

(1) user can connect with no problems but when a 2nd connection tries to connect, it is immediately denied access with the message: This compute can't connect to the remote computer.  Try connecting again later.  If the problem persists, please contact the owner of the remote computer..."

The TS has been activated and (5) User CALs have been installed and activated via the web to the MS Clearing House.  The TS has the license server installed on it as well and is setup as a Domain license server with Per User licenses.

I have run the LSView.exe utility and it does show the license server running and green.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks!
Jeff

Can any 1 user connect? Or just 1 particular user?

Usually it would generate a different error if it was a licensing issue (well I believe so as we use more Device Licenses).

Anyone connect, however once (1) person is on, no one else can connect, not even the administrator on the console.

Is there any where else I should be looking for errors other than the event log?

Here's an update and found the solution, someone had turned on a group policy that only allows (1) connection at a time.  Removed the GP and now all users can connect simultaneously.

Thanks for all your help anyways.

Main thing is you have it working now! :)
